Forum: classic_tv Subject: Some 1967 series that are completely lost/wiped

If nobody minds, would it be OK for me to continue to post some lists of some old TV series that are completely lost/no surviving episodes?

If so, here are the names of some others, which debuted in 1967 on British TV:
"The Whitehall Worrier"
"Girl in a Black Bikini"
"The Paradise Makers"
"Joe & Co"
"St. Ives"
"Witch Hunt"
"Mickey Dunne"
"Three of a Kind"
"Sorry I'm Single"
"Angel Pavement"
"The Queen's Traitor"
"The White Rabbit"
"A Series of Bird's"

These aren't the only 1967 series to be completely lost, but it does give you an idea of what happens when a broadcaster does not have a real archival policy until the late-1970s.

Your Highness,
Do not give upon some of these turning up. Over several years of researching I have found several ‘lost’ items. A cardboard box in a library cabinet has more than once held something no one knew was there. Four years ago I found an envelope containing 1921 aerial photographs of my town that were completely unknown by the government agency that had them.
Perhaps one of the actors has a copy in their position. If you are especially interested in a TV show, send a small letter to the cast members and see if they know of one. That approach has paid off for me. Although in my case the prize was an 1851 letter complaining of the quality of paper supplied by a local mill.

Indeed....there's a largely lost UK show from the 1970s for which further episodes were found because a talent manager had kept tape copies.

Keep it up. This is interesting. Stuff like this is the reason why no one's ever really going to have a complete DOCTOR WHO collection.
